A year or so ago I made a silkscreen print out of an animation, now I’m making an animation out of the print. Surely this is the path to enlightenment.
A quick editorial cartoon about the intersection of self-pity, entitlement, rape, territoriality, misogyny and fear of women. You see it all over the place online in the form of Men’s Rights Activists (of whom there are a few reasonable non-misogynists), Men Going Their Own Way, Pick Up Artists, and dudes touting the “Red Pill”, because The Matrix is a good movie. Look any of these up if you have the stomach for it. These are extreme examples, but watered-down forms of these ideas are everywhere.
In lurking their blogs and youtube channels for a while, I’ve noticed that beyond the standard patriarchal chauvinism there is this deep fear of women - what they will do to me, how they will reject me, how they will use me, how they are changing society in a way that does not favor me, how they are making men into something I don’t like, how they are making themselves into something I don’t like, that they won’t give me what I want, and that they won’t give me what I think is rightfully mine. This goes beyond fear of feminism- this is fear of women at its purest. And that, to quote a puppet, leads to anger and hate. It’s sad.
I am a feminist. I think there’s enough ice cream to go around, but it does mean those of us with 3 scoops might have to give one or two up. Also, The Matrix is a fun movie but probably not anything you should be basing a philosophy on.
Beautiful dystopic things for your Friday.
According to the description: ”This film was made over the last two years in our evenings, weekends and days off. We had no budget but a lot of help from our very talented and generous friends.”
See? Make your own way! It’s the best way, if you can swing it.
(Also, the vertical format looked great on my iPhone, and I assume it would look good on tablets and other vertical things.)

“SWEET SAVAGE LOVE” by Charlotte Marie Jackson
I actually follow her on deviantArt and watched this a while ago. I loved and was delighted by everything about it, shared this with my frandzz who thought it was gross. I just remembered this clip when I saw an Adventure Time gif and decided to put this up because, why not? She might just be a student at CalArts now, but a few years from now this is going to be the stuff of cartoon comedy! She’s a terrific artist besides. (Click on her name for her artsy fartsy awesomeness.)
